It’s that time of year when the weekly news magazines go haywire with Top Ten lists. Over at the healthier TIME end of the publishing spectrum, there are a whopping 54 compilations to choose from.

For FishbowlLA’s money, nothing says “2011” quite like the category of “Top 10 Fleeting Celebrities.” And in a cruel, ironic twist (or as a reflection of good work by the Kardashian publicists), it is not Khloe, Kim or Khourtney who tops this particular Megan Gibson rundown, but rather an innocent NBA bystander:

Ouch. In achieving this highly debatable top spot, Humphries beat out golden-voiced and once homeless Ted Williams, YouTube sensation Rebecca Black, runaway Playboy bride Crystal Harris and one half of Charlie Sheen‘s erstwhile porn goddesses.
